Chicago Public Library Unveils its New Website

What do you think of the new website ? Here's the old one.

You can comment below or on their Help Us Improve Our Website page.


I don't like it. Busy, busy, busy. Built to serve management, not users.

It stinks. However, they could mitigate that by putting in a link for "classic catalog" like San Diego County does.

They should scrap it. Busy and almost dizzying.

The website reminds me of Pinterest

It's lousy. Take a look at NYPL for a better one from the same company. Geesh!
